Tim Russert, linchpin of NBC’s news organization and host of Meet The Press, collapsed and died today of an apparent coronary embolism.
Shocking news, this is. And no less disturbing for the fact that Russert was only 58 years old. I hate it when the Unexpected Visitor picks off someone who is not much older than me...it reminds me that I’m living on borrowed time.
We all are.
Tim, requiescat in pace. We hardly knew ye.
